'FANTASTIC UTOPIAS' Rocca di Angera

18/05/2020 — 27/09/2020

Curated by Ilaria Bonacossa 

In collaboration with Galleria Continua

Ala Scaligera, Rocca di Angera (VA)

www.isoleborromee.it 


Artists: Jonathas De Andrade, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Carlos Garaicoa, Antony Gormley, Shilpa Gupta, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Zhanna Kadyrova, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Ornaghi & Prestinari, Kiki Smith, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Ai Weiwei, Chen Zhen.


In the spaces of the Ala Scaligera, the works of 15 international artists give life in their diversity to unexpected and perhaps magical images, simultaneously seductive and frightening, capable of taking us to alternative universes far from what’s possible. 

In this exhibition, curated by Ilaria Bonacossa in collaboration with Galleria Continua, the protagonist is the fantastical: relegated from the nineteenth century to the world of childhood, it becomes a way to break conventions and imagine what seems to be impossible and unknown.


Opening hours: everyday, 12.00 - 18.00, last entrance at 17.30.

(In some periods the closing of the museum could vary, for up to date information please consult the website www.isoleborromee.it)

ART BASEL OVR EVENT | Michelangelo Pistoletto - The Epiphany of the Mirror Paintings

The celebrated Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, one of the leading figures of Arte Povera, will speak about his beginnings as a young artist. He will describe the genesis of the mirror works that marked a crucial shift in his successful career. It is a unique opportunity to interact with one of the most important Masters of the 20th century.


In Michelangelo Pistoletto’s work, mirrors constitute an image of the world, both of humans and society, and of cosmic space. "It seems clear to me that the space in which this reflection takes place is neither limited nor exclusively individual, but is the cosmic space of totality and, therefore, of everyone". (Michelangelo Pistoletto)


“When, in 1961, I began to paint my face on a black ground polished to the point of being a mirror, I saw it coming towards me, standing out in the space of an environment in which everything was moving, and I was shocked. I also realized I no longer had to look at myself in another mirror, but that I could copy myself by looking directly into the canvas” .(Michelangelo Pistoletto). 


The event will take place in live streaming on Zoom and Facebook on the 18th of June, at 16:00 PM CET.
